I had a great time staying here. The accommodation is very presentable and clean with great views. Lots of big windows provide a light airy space. The walk to the beach is as advertised and is in easy striking distance of Ynys Llanddwyn.
The only reason for dropping a mark is that it's necessary to be good with a stove to get the heat up. I was alright and comfortable enough having dressed for it being forewarned. I used to have a stove of my own however, and still struggled to maintain the wood burning. Delyth's parents (who were looking after the place the weekend I was there) were very helpful however and lovely folks. I would have given 4.5 stars if possible, and would love to visit again.
Great accommodations that were very clean, modern and well stocked with necessities. The location is down a narrow country road on a Welsh farm. Very pretty countryside.
The cottage was equipped with an ecological heating system that comprised of solar panels and back-up wood stove that heated the water for the showers and wall mounted radiators. This is a thoughtful and energy saving system, but is the source of my consternation regarding our stay. The weather was very cold and wet, and though the owner had started a fire in the wood stove, the cottage was cold inside. A note given from the owner before our arrival said we should settle in and she would stop by as soon as she was able. We found a booklet with information about the heating system and detailed instructions on how it was to be run. It took about 30 or more minutes to read it over and understand how it operated.
The radiators were automatically set to run only for several hours during the morning, and four hours in the evening. But the radiators would not receive hot water if the temperature in the hot water tank was below 50 degrees C. When we arrived, the tank temp was 29 degrees, and though I continued to add logs throughout the evening, it finally reached only 42 degrees before in began declining to 37 degrees. Of course, the fire was cold in the morning, and we did not restart it, as we would be out all day. We returned late in the evening, and did not restart the fire as we were going to bed shortly. Had it not been for the portable electric radiator in each bedroom we would have been forced to pack up and leave. There was not enough hot water the first night for three people to take very, very quick showers, and no hot water the second night. The owner never did vis us during the hours we were present in the cottage.
A system like this is a great idea, but for a cottage that is being rented out to numerous people who probably have varying knowledge and patience on dealing with it, I don’t think it is a wise choice.
So...if you are visiting while the climate is warm, we would highly recommend this holiday rental. If the weather is cold, I would shy away unless you have a good knowledge of operating a wood stove and will be in the cottage long periods of time to keep it running hot enough to heat and maintain the water tank temperature.
I came to the lodge with my 6 year old daschund, arrived on the Friday afternoon,and stayed for 2 nights, stunning location, stunning views, but was disappointed to see the furniture in the lounge was nothing like the photos.
it also had a strong curry smell.
the hot water was tepid, and the whole cabin was cold.
used to the heater to warm the room up.
I had the log burner on but it still didn't have that real hot water feel in the shower.
perhaps this property is different in the summer.
I still had a nice time as did my dog, but just lacked nice touches like the furniture in the photos, shower towels could have been bigger, no heating etc
Had a lovely few days staying in Tyddyn Plwm Isa. Loads of logs helped keep the house warm and the water hot.
Did some great walks and had nice meals out at the Oystercatcher.
Would recommend highly.

Lovely winter getaway in the Anglesey micro-climate. Dogs loved it. The walking was great and it was so peaceful
